    The Real Inspector Hound
    Print this page

    Acting Against Cancer brings forth inspectors, a murder mystery, and critics who can't stay out of the play in The Real Inspector Hound, which opens on Friday.

    The Real Inspector Hound will take place Apr. 10, 11, 13, 16 and 17 at 8 p.m. each night. Matinees are to happen on Apr. 12 and 19 at 2 p.m. each day. All performances will go on at Alley Theater, located at 633 West Main Street in downtown Louisville.

    Tickets for most shows are $24 per person. The shows on Apr. 13 and 16 are $12 per person. All tickets can be purchased through or The Alley Theater website.

    The Real Inspector Hound focuses, at first, on a murder mystery in a manor where a body is found. A madman also happens to be on the loose at the same time. As Inspector Hound shows up to investigate, two theater critics in the audience talk about the events as well as their own personal lives. One of the critics in particular has a crush on one of the actresses in the play he's reviewing. As the critics talk, they find themselves slowly more involved with the play to the point of actually taking roles within it.

    Tom Stoppard created the production, which Acting Against Cancer is putting on as its last show of the season.

    Before the show, guests can enter The Underground Hound Lounge, where they will be treated to a preshow mystery, among other events.

    All profits from The Real Inspector Hound will go towards the funding of an art therapy program in the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center at Kosair Children's Hospital. 

    More information on the show can be found at the Acting Against Cancer website.
